Hydrate and Be Great

Keeping hydrated is always important, though no more so than when you’re exercising. And so whether it’s on the day of a race or during your pre-race training, make hydration a top priority. And why exactly is keeping hydrated so important when exercising? It’s because water helps our muscles work - so by drinking water before, during and after exercising will help prevent your muscles from cramping. Knowing exactly how much water you should be drinking according to your specific requirements can be hard to figure out - and so we’ve created a clever tool which will make sure you’re drinking the exact right amount of water your body needs to feel great. By following the three simple steps below...our very clever tool will do all the number crunching for you. First things first - you will need to know your weight in kilograms and your height in centimeters in order to use the tool. If you're not sure what you weigh in KG's then click here and check out this quick and easy conversion tool, or click here to convert feet and inches into cm.
